A state trooper rescued a woman from a car stranded in floodwaters, according to a news release issued Tuesday.
State police said Trooper Jarrod Smith received a dispatch about a woman whose car had gotten stuck in deep water on Jarvis Hollow Road in Clay County.
When Smith arrived, the car was about 40 feet off the road and the water was as high as the headlights.
With the help of Jeremy Garrison, a Clay County deputy sheriff, Smith tied a rope around himself, waded to the car and brought the woman safely back to the roadway, according to the release.

Smith and the woman, whose name was not released, were not hurt.
Smith is a native of Clay County and has been a state police office for six years.
